A lot of the covers I found this week aren’t my usual type of covers, and I’m pretty sure quite a few of them aren’t sci-fi/fantasy, but elephants is just an awesome topic! So I wanted to join in anyway.
You know, I always say I have a story for everything, but it turns out I do not have any stories about elephants. I mean, I’ve read some interesting/funny/awesome things involving elephants in circus books, true things even, but I have no personal stories. They seem like pretty amazing creatures though! Now go enjoy the covers I found :-)

Books Covers featuring Elephants

You know it’s about to get real when the emperor has an elephant fighting for his side.
The Magician’s Elephant by Kate DeCamillo
This definitely looks magical!
Hide the Elephant by Jonathan Dunne
This one also just looks kind of magical and whimsical.
The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
Aside from the obnoxious gold sticker thing, this cover is so cute.
An Elephant in the Garden by Michael Morpurgo
This one is just so pretty.
A Circus of Brass and Bone by Abra SW
I love unique this is with the skeletal-looking elephant!
That Time I Joined the Circus by J.J. Howard
I’ve always thought this cover was gorgeous and has such a magical, old-school circus feel.

I don’t often read middle-grade, but I can’t deny that they sometimes have the best covers! This is awesome artwork and looks so interesting!
